I'm running 245/30/19 on my Lowenhart's right now. They will fit but they look FUNKY. It's stretched a lot over the rim. Personally I don't like the look of it but if that's your only choice, then go for it. I believe recommended size for 9.5" rim is 265-275

Considering 235's on a 9" rim look stretched (and several folks have complained that the rim sticks out past the tire), 245's on a 9.5" rim would look even more streched... You're putting a tire that's only 3/8ths of an inch wider on a rim that's 1/2 of an inch wider. I'd get a wider tire, myself.

Just my two pennies... :dunno:

Tirerack DIDNT recommend ME getting 245s when I ordered my rims and tires almost 2 years ago....maybe they have changed. :tongue:

:lmao: Jeff I know that it fits, but I am just saying that tirerack told me it would rub and that it would mess up the computer on the car. At that same time, guys on the board were saying go for it...

Nice pic BTW
